Beau-ism of the Week

I was wasting time on Pinterest and this picture showed up on my feed


Beau saw the picture and said, 

"Oh she gots her skin all ruined because her been suckin her thumb.  She should stop sucking her thumb if her wants to get her stomach all better."


I think maybe we tell her too many things are the result of her thumb sucking.  Not a day goes by when you won't hear something preposterous come out of my mouth like,

"Well, honey, your ice cream must have run away because it saw you were sucking your thumb"

or

"I think your tummy hurts because you were sucking your thumb"

or

"That woman on the movie is crying because I told her you were sucking your thumb"




At some point in the future I am going to ask myself where I went wrong, what was that one point in time that I really screwed up my kid.  There is a strong chance I won't remember this moment so I'm sure I can just blame it on my husband when we get there.  

I'm such a good mom.

well that acorn didn't fall far from the tree...I ALWAYS blame everything on Dad. Hey, it's worked for 32+ years. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Oh my GOODNESS! That is hysterical. You should have a conversation with Mandy about how you shouldn't tell kids lies (true convo between the two of us)...very entertaining!

Haha You are a good mom! We're given so many opportunities to screw them up, I've decided I shouldn't waste time worrying about the one thing REALLY did them in ;)
